      Why not fixing the Wayland protocol instead? Why did they choose to not allow fractional scaling?
      "How will you handle fractional scaling on Wayland which only allows integer scaling?"

      "At first, by upscaling in the client, and downscaling in the compositor. But there’s also some idea of doing a Wayland protocol extension."
